convinced this is not a factor. >> john: tina, does president obama need to do more to raise awareness? >> it depends on what your cause is. he always needs to do more until he actually accomplishes it. >> john: fair enough. >> the greatest advocate for climate change is not al gore. it's sandy. i think as we see it happening in front of us, it's going to be self-evident. go ahead. >> john: if you would please. i agree with you on sandy and mayor bloomberg has been a real leader ever since. with the republican house, what can the president do to try to fight climate change? >> well, i think that he needs to take on -- there is a huge industry that is -- actively campaigning against climate change and actively sowing the seeds of skepticism when it comes to climate denial. they're very effective at that. those are people who pad their pockets with oil money. every time that we have winter, that somehow shows we're not having global warming right? because look, it snowed. and not knowing that the weather is not actually what climate is and being able to educate people as to the

. >> good morning. >> maria, let's start with you, president obama needs a big tent to effectively pass his agenda, evangelicals typically support conservatives. with giglio bowing out does it alienate this group and create an unnecessary headache for president obama? >> i think the presidential inaugural committee could have done a better job of vetting and therefore wouldn't be in the position but i commend reverend giglio for bowing out. i think it was the right thing to do for the president's inauguration. the president's inauguration should reflect the tenor and the focus on diversity and inclusion which has been a huge priority for this president especially this year when he came out historically in favor of the same rights for gays and lesbians to marry as everybody else so i think the reverend made the right decision. i don't think the white house will shut him out. he was at the white house last year at a prayer breakfast. there are other situations and forums where the terrific work the reverend has done for example in trying to prevent human trafficking around the world,

. maybe president obama needs some binders full of women and by the way, that leaves kathleen sebelius in the cabinet. and they've said kathleen sebelius is staying but nobody's said anything about janet napolitano in the cabinet. is she staying or isn't she staying? so the president's opened himself up to some criticism here. charlie rangel jumped on it yesterday. he was asked on msnbc, how does this look? does very a diversity problem? >> it's embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney and we were very hard on mitt romney with his women binders. i kind of think there's no excuse when it is the second term. the first term, you can say people got to know who is around that's qualified in order to get this job. >> bill: so i ask the question to you does the president have a little problem here with diversity? 1-866-55-press. by the way compounding the problem, the president's now looking for looking for looking for a new chief of staff. everybody reports there are two candidates to be chief of staff. dennis mcdonna who is the deputy national security adviser.

needs an ally. >>> president obama is heading into a fight over cabinet confirmations with a pick of familiar faces. carl, the former assent secretary of state under president clinton says, "unlike the first term, which was often referred to as a team of rivals, i think this is going to be more like a band of brothers." while this is a team that has joined the president on the frontlines before, it also creates two problems for him. the first is that republicans cannot stand the fact that his nominees also happen to be his closest confidants, including jack lew, who has already held two top positions. >> i believe this man has been the architect of the obama budget policy. i believe it's very fundamentally wrong, and i do not believe he has been honest with the american people about it. >> several senate republicans have made it clear that jack lew will be a fight just as chuck hagel will be a fight, just as susan rice was a fight. the second problem for president obama is that so far his chosen bantd doesn't include any sisters, nor does it include any racial diversity. even members

assumption that all you had to do was not be barack obama and that you could win. and i think people needed to know more about who mitt romney was. what motivated him. you know, how he would relate to them and how they correlate to him. and they, they made the decision partially because they had a very brutal primary season and they devoted a lot of resources to taking their opponents out. but they made a decision that they didn't have the resources to do that. >> rose: what about the vice presidential choice that they made. >> well, i think that that was not a broadening choice. that to that paul ryan was chosen, i felt that that was a choice that would help them get through their convention because it would be well-received by the base of the party. but it also, it also diverted the discussion from growing the economy and jobs which was their message to a lengthy discussion about medicare and how we should approach that. and you know, ryan had some fairly sharp ideaological positions. and he was identified with a very unpopular republican congressman, tomorrow parielo the former co
